A wide range of tax and legal aspects are involved in mergers and acquisitions. Even though taxes may not be the first to spring to mind, it is important to optimise the structure of such transactions. This can save you from paying a lot of tax. That is why our transaction specialists are here to assist you with structuring such projects.

Refinancing and IPOs

We are here to help ensure that your transaction runs smoothly. Not only do we have vast experience with mergers and acquisitions, but we can also help with refinancing and flotations. It doesn’t matter whether these take place in the Netherlands or abroad. Thanks to our close international cooperation with KPMG colleagues in 144 countries, we can guide your restructuring in the most efficient way possible. We will contribute ideas and assist throughout the entire process. In addition, we will alert you to the opportunities and risks to avoid unnecessarily high costs.
